To combat the symptoms of "artist withdrawal", I've decided to set up makeshift workspaces for patterning & sewing. First steps - some extensive rearranging now that I no longer have the same storage options or space. Although I will have to "Tetris" (move things about & re-stack) to get at anything, my tools/fabrics/notions/etc. are sorted again & at least accessible with a bit of digging.
The cabinets that supported my island worktable are gone but I still have the table top, so my solution is an improvised set of legs using a couple of tall plastic drawer units. The table surface sits on the units & is buckled against a wall to stabilize it a bit, since it can't actually be secured - no leaning on the table though or the whole thing will topple! The height turned out to be perfect for work while standing (drafting/cutting) eliminating the back & neck strain one gets standing hunched over a standard height table.
I've reallocated a small dining table for my sewing machine next to a window, a few extension cords & power bars and it's ready!!!
Next steps ... what to make first?
